I thought I was the only crazy lunatic who hears noises in my condo. Sometimes I hear music, other times I hear voices. I can never find the source. Eliot never hears what I hear.

That’s why I just laughed myself silly when I read the story in Mashable about actress Jenny McCarthy’s home being haunted.  Jenny was looking at herself in a living room mirror when she heard her piano being played.

She immediately yelled out to her husband, actor Donnie Wahlberg. “DONNIE? Someone just played the piano!” Of course, he didn’t hear a thing, so she got doubly upset.

She decided to check her Nest security tapes to see if she could identify anything. The cause? The couple’s Google Home unit was rebooting itself. It makes the same sound as someone playing a piano. That’s life with modern technology. Google Home is a voice-activated speaker similar to Alexa.

Can you really depend on Google Translator to give you a perfect word-to-word translation? Talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel, and actress Amanda Seyfried gave it a whirl when they compared Slovenian to the English language. Of course, they sang the “Dancing Queen,” from her movie “Mamma Mia!” which translates to “Hula Prince.”
